5. Phosphorescent – Song for Zula

I guess there are moments in the day where it’s only appropriate to have a soundtrack playing while you’re doing that awesome thing you do. This song really got me with that.

It emphasises how careful production technique can really carry a song which uses minimalist instrumentation and the standard four-chord progression. What grabbed me first was the delay with the drums, but the overlaying repetition of the synth strings combined with all other underlying elements makes it memorable. Kind of like a modern day Bittersweet Symphony (thanks @spetznatz)
